Wm Vere & Sons was founded in 1912 in High Wycombe by the Grandfather of Derek Vere, current Managing Director. He was a craftsman chairmaker who made Windsor chairs, which in its time was the staple product of the area, due to the abundant supply of locally grown timber.
The 1st factory was in Oakridge Road and early in the 1920's relocated to a larger site where he was joined by his son Albert. Together they delevoped the business until 1932 where by they moved again to a large freehold site. Verco is still based there today.
The Company diversified into other forms of domestic furniture, including dining suites & upholstered lounge furniture.
During the 2nd World War, the Company remained open being commissioned to produce wooden folding chairs and in 1945 the business was incorporated in the name of Williame Vere & Co Ltd. After the war domestic furniture was produced until the early 1960's when Derek Vere and his brother entered the business. They then started to manufacture office furniture. The domestic side was phased out in order to concentrate on office furniture, particularly seating.
The ensuing years saw the company grow until it had overtaqken its competitors to become one of the UK's largest manufacturer of office seating. This position has been maintained, whilst developing a range of desking, tables & cabinet furniture. and in recognition of the popularity of the brand namem the company trading name was changes to VERCO Office Furniture Ltd in 1990.
